Final tally: 35 movies watched, 26 were first time views. Not bad, that is about my average.
While I did great in the challenge, I failed in making these "game related". I have a few things I am going to post this week that might make up for it.
The Movie of the Month was, of course, The Witch. So good I watched it twice.
The surprise hits, for me, were Eyes of Fire (1983) and Haunter (2013).
I also promised to talk about what my favorite horror movies of all time are. That is much harder since there are so many. I am going to give it more thought.
If you are curious I have set up a Pinterest Board with all the posters of the movies I have watched over the last 7 years of doing this. 228 pins total.
For next year I am thinking of doing something very different.
First, yes, I want to make as many game stats for the movies I watch as possible. I have to stay true to my first and most loyal audience.
Also, I have all the these VHS tapes that I copied in the 80s and early 90s, about 16 total. Each one is 6 or 8 hours long with anywhere from 3 to 5 movies per tape, but usually 4. Rough estimates I put it at 45 movies, give or take. What I want to do is go through all of those and review all those movies before tossing out the tape. I would also check to see if there are Blu-Ray or DVD options for the movies. Now I am totally expecting these tapes to be in complete crap condition. Some I know have not seen the light of day in 20 years. But I think it would be fun. Since they are all movies I have seen before, game stats will come quicker to me.
|The bottom row are horror tapes. If this works I'll tackle the row above which is all MST3k.|
That is also the problem. 45 movies, all of them are ones I have seen before, So no first-time views. I hold out that there might be one or two on there I have never seen. It is possible. I used to work nights, so I'd go to the library, check out some tapes, take them home and cue them up to copy to watch while I was in college.
While this pleases my OCD and my need to declutter I am hoping that the tapes are still in good enough shape. The other issue is I have only one working VHS player in the house (i think) so I am locked to watching these in one room. I am very, very spoiled with all my on-demand streaming options.
We will see how it goes.
